View Full Version : Feel weird and BP raised!!!

Hello I am male about 370 pounds again lost 50 pounds gained it all back when I hurt my neck.

I am on blood pressure meds and tried dieting last week again and a weird thing happened my blood pressure went up to 160/100 in 2 days. So I stopped.

3 days ago tried again and this time in 2 days went to 160/95.

I did not up protein at all. The only thing I did was more carbs and way more water.

I did some research and found out that it is possible that if you cut sodium out your body will release what it has and will raise your bp. I also read that some people with high bp drinking lots of water benefits them but some hurts them.

I also read that too low of calories does the same thing.

So my question is has this ever happened to anyone or would anyone here have a suggestion. I know you can not give medical advice as I am asking for opinions.

Thanks any and all help would be greatly appreciated as need to lose tons of weight but can not with my bp up and the symptoms.

Maybe try easing in to your program, smaller changes, so your body can adjust. Any chance you're adding in something you might be allergic to?

Have you talked to your dr. At all, some health plans have call in numbers, you can talk to a nurse or physician's assistant about your symptoms, maybe your prescription isn't quite right.

Do you monitor your BP when not "dieting" maybe this fluctuation is happening without the change in diet, then it would probably be related to your med.

Best to you :sunny:
